I think everyone would agree that Autumn is a beautiful season. The changing colours of leaves before they fall is a wonderful sight, but due to the nature of the process the leaves are undergoing, it is difficult to preserve them in all their glory. One method is to press autumn leaves, today we are exploring another really simple one - preserving leaves in wax.
We found dipping our leaves quickly into the hot wax avoided them wilting, and allowed us to capture their beauty at that particular moment in time. The wax only takes a few minutes to set on the leaves, but during this time it will leave marks if they touch anything, so we devised a drying frame to leave ours to dry in safety.
